When I read about Live, Love, and Run‘s new feature called The Weekly Chase, I knew instantly I wanted to be a part of it! The Weekly Chase is all about connecting bloggers with other bloggers to meet our goals. Every week, bloggers will post about their goals. The topics can range from fitness, running, eating, organizing, etc.
As a former leader of college student groups, during my pre-stay at home mommy, post-college days, I was constantly asking my students to set goals, evaluate their goals, and help them to stay on track to achieve their goals. I loved watching my students achieve their goals!
As a new mom, I don’t have many goals of my own other than to be the best mom I can be to my daughter on a daily basis. As a newbie runner I think The Weekly Chase will be the perfect opportunity to push me towards setting and accomplishing running goals! One of the rules for The Weekly Chase is to set at least one goal every Monday. I have two goals for my first edition:
1. Finish my goal of running 40 miles in June. After tonight’s 5 mile run I have less than 4 miles to go!
2. Sign up for my first Half Marathon. I want to do it, think about doing it, dream about doing it, but I just haven’t pulled the trigger. This week I will sign up for a half marathon and make it public knowledge so I feel accountable.
What are your goals this week?
